What to Expect
The day begins with a complimentary pickup from your Mombasa hotel. After a brief introduction, you set off for Shimba Hills with great views of the countryside off the beach. The area is inhabited by the Digo community. Take an hour-long nature and culture tour with Shimba Hills Forest Guide Association: visit a Digo village to learn about local butterfly breeding practices.

Continue deeper into the park, where you’ll leave the car behind for a hike to Sheldrick Falls, which tumbles 82 feet (25 meters) into a cool, clear pool that’s ideal for an afternoon swim. Those preferring not to hike can explore the park on a short game drive, then meet up with the hikers for a more extensive wildlife-viewing drive. In addition to being an important habitat for the endangered sable antelope, the Shimba Hills are home to leopard, waterbuck, bushbaby, and the nocturnal civet cat. Watch for the elephants that live in pockets of the lush rain forest, then scan the trees for ostrich eagles, cuckoos, and African hawks.

Enjoy your hot lunch at Shimba Hills Green Safari Camp (at own expense), where you’ll spend an easy-going afternoon with views of the Usambara Mountains and Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary, a community-based conservation project. After lunch, you will depart for Mombasa with a drop-off at your hotel.
